Palworld: Base Building Tips and Tricks

Palworld Base

A pretty beautiful base.

In total, you can build as many as 3 bases throughout the game. Despite this, building the first one is a painstaking, time-consuming, and material-intensive process that should be handled responsibly. While building a base, you can make plenty of unpredictable mistakes, so we are here to help you avoid them.

Select the Appropriate Location

Before you start building, you will definitely need to find a good spot where you can quickly and comfortably progress. We recommend that you choose a territory on a higorund area so that you will see the raiders running at you at the bottom and always be ready to resist them. In addition, it is also recommended that the base area contain ore veins as well as trees so that your Pals can mine resources for you.

If you do not know what the boundaries of your base are, you can easily figure this out. First, go to the Palbox, it is the center of your base. Next, walk in one of the directions until you see the blue borders, these are the boundaries of your base. All structures, resource veins, and trees must be within the base because otherwise, the Pals that work here will not be able to interact with them.

The last thing to remember is that your base is also a Fast Travel point, which is very important in certain cases. If we're talking about the first base, it doesn't really matter where you build it, the main thing is that this place is comfortable for you and useful for your development. Talking about the second or third base, it is recommended to build them in hard-to-reach places so that in the future you do not spend a lot of time reaching these locations.

Place Structures Correctly

There is no hierarchy or queue for building structures, instead, you will just need to make sure to place them properly. The thing is that if you place structures close to each other, or in hard-to-reach places, there is a chance that your Pals will get stuck in the textures. This is very bad because in this case, they can't get out and will get sick, which will take a lot of resources in the long run.

Upgrade Your Palbox

If you have just started playing, be sure to take care of the linear completion of tasks with Palbox. You can level this structure up to level 15, and of course, get rewards for your efforts. The main rewards will be an opportunity to build a second base after reaching level 10 and a third base after reaching level 15.

Fortunately, the tasks for upgrading Palbox are not difficult. All you have to do is build new structures, which you can unlock in the Technology tab as you progress through the game, and earn Technology points.

Take Care of Base Defence

Throughout the game, you will often be attacked by raids from different groups of enemies, which can be syndicate bandits or even angry Pals. At first, they are weak, and it is not difficult to resist their attacks. But in the future, the enemies will become much stronger and will start attacking your base by throwing grenades and setting fire to buildings and structures.

You'll need to unlock the Stone or, better yet, the Metal Structure Set. All you need to do is spend a few Technology Points to unlock them, and then a few resources to build new defenses for your base. Thus, by investing a small amount of resources, you can prevent catastrophic consequences in the case of enemy raids.

Take Care of Your Pals

One of many useful Pals you should definitely have in your base.

Pals are an integral part of your base. Some of them will be constantly working on the base to mine new resources, grow crops, or do other activities. Thus, you will definitely have to make sure that they feel comfortable, and do not get sick or injured. Be sure to place the following structures on your base:

  • Pal Bed - This is where Pals will sleep and recover.
  • Berry Plantation - The best structure for beginners to farm food. To automate the cultivation, you need Pals with the appropriate Work Suitability.
  • Feed Box - The place where Pals will carry the grown food and eat from.

This way, you will provide Pals with food and sleep, and they will be able to perform their tasks better.
